ID3 tags not updating inside of Djay Pro on Mac

Djay Pro 2 Mac - 2.0.10

It looks like track comments (and other ID3 tags) do not update inside of Djay Pro2 even after refreshing the library or restarting Djay.

I use Mixed in Key to find the key and energy levels of all my audio files, since Djay’s own key detection is wrong about half the time, and Djay doesn’t display keys in Camelot format. As a side note this also means djaying with spotify tracks is a huge hassle, since I can never trust the displayed key, but for my own files I can use Mixed in Key - and the tags do show up in djay at first.

Anyways, I often modify ID3 tags of my files *after* loading them in djay, to add more info about a track or define a rating (1-5 starts). I’ve verified that the tags are really getting updated on the original audio files by checking them in iTunes.

Unfortunately these tag changes are never reflected in Djay Pro, even after restarting Djay and restarting my computer. I also removed these tracks from all my Djay playlists and re-loaded them from the file browser in Djay, but I still only see the old tags. I do see the updated tags when I view the task in the file browser view, but if I copy that to a Djay playlist, I'm stuck with the old tags when I view it in the playlist.

It seems that Djay is saving ID3 tags internally after loading a track from disk, and using only those old tags when displaying track info. And it seems that Djay is never checking the actual audio files on library refresh or program startup, to see if the internal tag copies need to be updated.

I can reproduce this issue easily, with any mp3 file. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
